Hey, we need a name for this event. Coontiki was a good one and I like Left Coast Tiki Carving Seminar. Any creative ideas out there?

I say we call it the Left Coast Chop Chop Seminar.

A Tiki Chop Chop is any event where people get together and carve wood, either together on one piece, or on their own works. It's a group Chop Chop where lots of chips fly. I'm using the term from now on anyway.

And I like it because it sounds like something GROG would say.

If GROG like to change diapers, GROG can stay at my house. We'll give GROG food and drink, too.

Point of interest for some---Deadbolt and The Creepy Creeps are playing the Casbah that Saturday night. For those who aren't too tired from carving all day it promises to be a good Halloween show.

THANKS MATT! Deadbolt is awesome! At least, I hope they still are. Not sure when the last time I saw them was. 12 or 15 years maybe.

Like my realtor likes to emphasize," Location, location location".

I love San Diego, but it's a bit of a drive and the 405 and 5 going South on a Friday SUCKS!!!!! GROG live just above Los Angeles, and I'm sure there are a number of people in the LA area and up to San Francisco who would like to go, but San Diego is just North of Mexico.Gas is around $3.20 a gallon out here.GROG propose it be located nearer LA so that it's more centrally located between San Diego and San Francisco, so that more people will have the opportunity to make it.

Just GROG's two cents.

Hi Grog, I live in redondo beach, maybe some of us LA people could commute together? I am going to sign up

I'm in, but i do agree with grog that san diego is tough to get to for some of us, and it is halloween weekend. i'm sure there is a good reason for san diego (like transporting 25 logs ), but you'd probably get more responses from a los angeles venue. i know it would save me a couple hundred greenbacks....

so who do we pay and are there any recommendations for specific tools?

thanx,
aaron


Yes, please let us know where to sign up and what we will need, thanks


Amy

My brother wants to come also. Let me know how many boxes of band-aids I'll need to bring so there's enough to go around.

Would any of you coming to this "Left Coast Seminar" like me to do the half carved "Lessons" like I did in Coon Tiki?
I need to know soon as it takes a bit of time and I need to get more bass wood.
So far we have 17 promises and 7 of those are paid. When you pay, you need to give a shirt size to Moki too!
Thanks

My mistake. Deadbolt and the Creepy Creeps are on friday night. I can get a discount for anyone who is going to go. Also like Ben stated please give t-shirt sizes to Moki. I'll need a count so I can get those rolling.

This is an e-mail I got from Bosko regarding tools. I hope it is helpfull.
The tools;

Marples blue handled chisels; you can get a 4 pc set at Depot I think they
run 20 to 30 dollars. If you want to get fancy (or work plan to work large)
they also make a 2" and a 1-1/2"
"Wood is good" synthetic mallet, I'd get the medium weight, (20oz) this you
can pick up at Rockler on Clairmont Mesa.
Something to sharpen with, a cheap 2"X6" sharpening stone is OK and they run
about (?) some people really like to make a big thing about sharpening
stones, but for beginners the regular ones are fine, again I think you can
get these at Depot.
1 lumber crayon, I like blue or black.

Next this stuff is not necessary but it does make the job easier,
A draw shave with a BLADE (not total width) of at least 9 inches wide. A
small hatchet or axe, I used to have a old Sears roofers hammer/hatchet
which I loved until it was broken.

Cheers.
Matt

man this seminar sounds GREAT. i want to come SO bad. i want to meet all these amazing and talented carvers and their unique styles. but.....i live in canada, i dont know how much a trip there would cost, and i cant take plane if i got chissles. i would definately call off halloween for this event but again the transportation thing is the problem and i am only 15.

but if anyone from canada is comming down there give me a shout because ill pitch in for the trip if i can.

we need to have one of these events a little near the border atleast haha.

Ben - I am signed up and ready to go. I can't wait to meet you and carve with you, bosko and Diablo. I would LOVE to do the 1/2 carved pendant, that looked like a BLAST!

Can't wait!

Are the hook knifes you posted good ones or just inexpensive ones? which ones would you buy? I know nothing about hook knives, but I am very interested in learning. THanks Ben!
